Cyber-physical systems can collect information from different physical parameters through smart sensors and process this information in the cyber-world for best actuators control and energy efficiency. A smart building is such a good scope of application and presents a prototypical cyber-physical energy system because through sensing and computing, the system can analyze and make decisions based on contextual awareness information from the physical world and use this information in an intelligent way for smart distribution and smart balancing between power resources in outage mode. A new smart building architecture is proposed in this paper based on cyber physical manager for a dynamic selection of powered houses in an islanded building. The cyber physical manager control exchange with the main grid and also manage the power distribution into building based on analyzing of some parameters like real time consumption measurements collected by smart sensors/meters and batteries level charge. Prosumers production is also very important to be including in the building self powering in outage period. A simulation is done with results discussion for more optimization and to check the effectiveness and superiority of our autonomous power management system through on-site distributed generators within buildings to operate in islanding mode. Finally, This paper present a solution for new building generation that can have a self-supply based on distributed renewable energy and thereafter reduce costs for both government and costumers and create smart living space that becomes an important trend of future.
